    Westerners have been raised to believe for thepast few centuries that dreams have nothing to do with truth or with theirspiritual life. However, early Christian literature bears witness to thespiritual importance of dreams, and in the 20th century the work ofCarl Jung has reclaimed for dreams their rightful place in contemporaryspirituality. In this workshop, participants will be led to explore thesymbolism of their own dreams as a path to a surprising depth of healing.
